Run for the Zoo is an annual highlight on the Chicago running calendar.
The 41st annual Run for the Zoo benefits Lincoln Park Zoo and helps to keep it free and open 365 days a year.
Some of the race highlights include:
- 5K and 10K race options
- USATF-certified courses that partially run through the zoo’s beautiful grounds
- Wave start times for an efficient runner experience
- Themed tech shirts (with a brand new logo for 2019!)
- Post-race celebration on the zoo’s Main Mall
